Astros 14, Braves 4

That was a massacre. Horacio Ramirez (2-2, 5.06) left the game in the 2nd after getting hit in the head on a Berkman liner. Amazingly, it looks like he's going to be okay. But he didn't pitch well and had no defensive help. He would have escaped a big first inning if it weren't for a misplay by Jordan on a McCann pickoff throw that would have been out #3. Then, Diaz misplayed a fly ball to start the 2nd. The game was over basically in the first inning. Ramirez allowed 7 runs (6 earned) on 6 hits, a walk, and a strikeout in 1.2 innings. All the relievers except Ray pitched today. All pitched well except for Villarreal who was awful and allowed a couple of homers, and poor Reitsma who allowed 5 runs before giving an out to make the score look really bad. I don't know what the Braves will do with him. The Braves made 3 outs on 3 pitches in the 7th. Speaking of Jordan, the Braves have got to get rid of him. He can't play first base, and can't hit left-handers. These are 2 of the main reasons he's on the team. But, I expect that he'll probably stay on the team just because. Offensive contributors: Edgar Renteria was 4-5 with his 8th homer. Jeff Francoeur was 2-4 with his 13th homer, a triple, and scored twice. Chipper Jones was 2-5 with his 7th homer. The Braves are off tomorrow, so mercifully they won't lose tomorrow. They go to Florida to play somebody their own size, but have to face the Marlins 3 best starters. Smoltz against Josh Johnson Tuesday.
